I am that person who searches hours and hours for someone elses interpretation of how I feel because I can never seem to find the words myself.
Not to mention my time is not my own, and I never seem to have the time to really sit down and think about my emotions.
On the other hand, when something is seriously bothering me, it eats me alive. My brain is like a movie, replaying events, remembering words, remembering emotions and I try to find answers to questions. I have recently learned that sometimes it’s okay not to have the answers you may need. Life is constantly moving, time never stops. Why waste the seconds in the day.
Which brings me to my first point.
- The past cannot be changed.
You can try and try and try to think of ways to change an outcome sometimes detrimental events in your life. Let me stop you right there. In my experience the past is a lesson. Doesn’t mean it didn’t mean anything to you. It just means that your future, the one you fight for every day, is not made for it. You can’t bring the past to the present. You gotta cut that string and let the balloon go. Your inner worth will thank you!
2. Kindness if free.
This could not be any truer. No matter what happens to you, and how you choose to write your story, “always stay humble and kind”. (Probably my favorite Tim McGraw song.) But he’s on to something. If you treat people the way you’d like to be treated–the world would probably spinning a little lighter and brighter. The world today surrounds you sometimes with such darkness, such hatred. It’s nice to be reminded to be kind. It can go a long way. You never know how someones day is going when you are approached by them. Kindness does go a LONG way. ❤
3. You only fail if you quit.
I have some trouble with this sometimes. I have so much that I want to do. Some much I want to accomplish. They say life gets in the way, and yes that is very much true. But it is also an excuse. I have, in the past, given things up that I wanted to complete. I am slowly working on making that up to myself, because at the end of the day, your life matters too. Time to take yourself off the back burner, pull yourself up by your boots straps and try the world on for size! Once you get yourself back into the fast lane, you will be unstoppable! You can always lean on friends and family for support and guidance too!! 🙂
4.Happiness is found within
You know what can make you happy. You know the ways to get there but sometimes there are obstacles. I am here to tell you that is okay! Everyone has insecurities and not enough self obsession. I’m sure you can think of something immediately that you know in your heart would make you happy. Whether it’s turning on music while you make breakfast, to buying yourself a new shirt. Believe it or not, one little thing that you do towards yourself helps your inner self. It does!
5.Everyone’s journey is different
Flash back to High School. You are sitting in class, probably the first day, and your teacher asks you, ” What do you want to be when you grow up?” So go around the room, or maybe have to write an essay about it. But you and all your clique best friends all write the same things, because why wouldn’t you? I pictured being best friends with all my friends after highschool. Naive? Probably. But back then I didn’t want to believe that some of my friends wouldn’t be in my life today. Doesn’t make them any less important because I love all of them very much. But my journey was one that I had to take on my own. We had to find our own identities. Idid stay in touch with some of them, but most have faded away and I have no idea what’s going on in their lives, but I am cheering them on from the bleachers! 🙂 Friendship is an invaluable thing to have in your life. Honesty, Loyalty and Free Therapy are keys to happiness. I am so grateful for the people who I can call family, who stay by my side no matter what. You guys are the real MVPs!
Life is learning. Life is growing. So even if you have some struggles, don’t hesitate to lean on someone you trust. Because most likely, they feel the same way you do!!
Until next time!
